    1404739740

    The Lotus Elise has given birth to some seriously fast and varied machinery.

    1404736980

    If you hear the name Local Motors and automatically associate it with the Rally Fighter pictured above, we can hardly blame you.

    Motorsports: Peugeot details 2008 DKR with 340-hp diesel [w/video]
    1404507600

    It would be all too easy to write off Peugeot Sport these days. The French automaker's competition division, once run by FIA president Jean Todt (before he was head of Ferrari), hasn't competed in Formula One in 14 years, in the World Rally Championship in nearly a decade, and shut down its Le ...

    Auctions: Ferrari 250 GTO heading to The Quail with no reserve
    1404496800

    It's not every day that a Ferrari 250 GTO changes hands. It is, after all, one of the most highly coveted cars ever made, and there were only 39 of them built in the first place. So when one goes up for sale, it tends to fetch millions. Tens of millions, actually, and the prices keep ...

    1404335700

    Jay Leno has to be under significant pressure knowing the appetite his fans have for a new Jay Leno's Garage video every week.

    1404259260

    Whether it's Mozart, Beethoven or The Beatles, they all (arguably) pale in comparison to just the right engine note for many auto enthusiasts. Petrolicious has found one of the absolute best with its latest focus on a 1972 Ferrari 312PB. The 312PB is important for more than just its ability to ...

    Video: Watch this rally car come within inches of killing four spectators
    1404172740

    Rallying isn't just dangerous for drivers, it's far and away one of the most dangerous forms of motorsport for spectators. Because of a lack of runoff areas and barriers, an out-of-control rally car is a huge danger for the fans that line the track. That's a lesson these extremely lucky Polish ...

    1404168000

    Motorsports: Race Recap: 2014 Pikes Peak Hill Climb
    1404142380

    The weather didn't interrupt the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb this year, the sun staying out to shine throughout a mildly cloudy day. The crowds didn't interrupt the race, either. Last year there were incidents like the woman who leaned so far into the road that her camera tore a hole in a ...

    Motorsports: MG reveals MG3 Trophy Championship concept at Silverstone
    1404129600

    The name MG hasn't often appeared on our radar screen in the decades since the British automaker stopped producing the little roadsters beloved by so many, and it hasn't been equated with "excitement" in about as long. These days it's owned by Chinese automaker SAIC and makes budget hatchbacks ...

    1403882940

    When McLaren rolled out its new 650S, we knew it would only be a matter of time before it would completely replace the 12C altogether. And that would include the racing version – not least because McLaren officials told us as much. And with the Goodwood Festival of Speed now getting ...

    1403796660

    At the time of writing in the wee hours Thursday morning, Pikes Peak officials still hadn't published Wednesday's official practice times, so we can't tell you how the day went.

    Motorsports: Nissan's Ghosn called out by Deltawing's Panoz in print ad
    1403738100

    When the Nissan ZEOD RC limped to the side of the Circuit de la Sarthe a mere five laps into this year's 24 Hours of Le Mans, we imagine that a certain American motorsports figure at least smirked a little. Don Panoz's ongoing feud with Nissan probably means he wasn't sorry to see the ...

    1403710200

    This year the big news about the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is about who isn't showing up. Sebastien Loeb, fresh off his record setting run last year, hasn't bothered coming back (and probably won't unless someone breaks his record). The Millen family is also noticeably absent.
